Protein Analysis Services and quantitative Method Development

The mission of the Proteomics Core Facility at the Medical University of Vienna is to provide the researchers at the Medical University of Vienna with consulting, teaching, protein analysis services and quantitative method development.

The Proteomics Core Facility provides a full proteomics infrastructure for the identification and characterization of proteins. The key technology of the Proteomics Core Facility is mass spectrometry for the qualitative and quantitative analysis and characterization of proteins. We primarily use the “bottom-up” proteomics approach, where all proteins are proteolytically (in most cases with tryptic, but other enzymes are also used) digested, producing peptide surrogates (signature peptides) of the original proteins.

Protein identifications are made using state-of-the-art search engines such as Mascot or X!Tandem, with the capability of searching standard or custom protein databases.
